Gottlieb Schlichenmayer  --  1946

     Gottlieb Schlichenmayer, son of Jacob and Margaret Schlichenmayer, was born November 30, 1877, at Birsula, in South Russia.  He was baptized in infancy, spending eleven of his boyhood years in Russia, after which he came with his parents to the Settlement community.  He was confirmed in the former Salem's church by the Launchman and later joined the present Immanuel's church where he remained a peaceful and active member until his death, at the age of 68 years, 9 months, and 10 days. 

     On January 20, 1907, he was married to Miss Rosine Weisshaar of Bethune.  This union was blessed with 10 children, one died in infancy.  After marriage he made his home on the present farm north of Bethune, where he remained the rest of his life.  Last January he took ill with high blood pressure from which he found relief and felt fairly well until September 2.  He was taken with a stroke which paralyzed his right side, although not affecting his mind.  He was rushed to the hospital where for a short time some hope for a partial recovery was held.  Suddenly he took a turn for the worse, however, remaining conscious up to three days prior to his demise.  On September 10, at 6:30 pm he quietly passes away. 

     Those remaining behind are his widow and nine children:  Frida Schaal, Frederick, Hulda Bauer, Emil, Elmer, George, Lawrence, Rudolf, Vernon, all of Bethune, except Hulda, who lives at Rocky Ford.  One brother, Dave, at Bethune, and two sisters, Margaret Adolf, Bethune and Elisabeth Metclaf of Font Collins, and five grandchildren and many friends. During the last nine months, three Schlichenmayer brothers went to the great beyond.  John died December 3, 1945, Fred May 3, 1946, and Gottlieb. 

    Funeral services were held on Friday, September 13, at 2:00 pm, at the Lutheran Immanuel's church and burial was in the church cemetery.  Rev. H. L. Woelber officiated.
